Sheils is man to catch at Masters

The second round of the Adelaide Masters' Series takes place this weekend at Mondello Park in County Kildare, with 21 races to be run over the two days.

This weekend will be the second of the five events scheduled and already the battle lines have been drawn in the feature Superbike and Supersport classes.

Derek Sheils leads the way in Superbike ahead of Mark Glasgow with Jonny Buckley and Damien Byrne tied for third place. Just one point further back and a man to watch this weekend is Portadown's Marshall Neill on the Wilson Craig Honda.

Cody Nally and Lee Johnston are certain to get in amongst the championship front runners as will David Haire, who makes his first appearance following a hand injury.

Leading the way in the Supersport class is Richie Ryan, who took two wins at the opening event. Second in the standings is the other 2013 race winner, Marshall Neill, and he is followed by pre-season favourite Carl Phillips, Jamie Patterson and last year's Cup champion Luke Johnston.

The first of three races for each class takes place on Saturday afternoon. Admission is just €10 (£8.55) for adults with under-16s free of charge.
